1822 – James P Martin etal v William Smith etal, discovery & relief, 1822, No 16
State of South Carolina, York District}
In Equity
To the Honorable Judges of the Court of Equity
… Orators James P Martin, Joseph G Martin, and Julius M Martin. … John Martin late of the District and State afsd was … at the time of his death devised and possessed of a large real and personal estate constituting of different tracts of land and between 20 and 30 negroes, besides other valuable property in bonds, notes, and a large stock of horses, cows, and so forth … John Martin departed this life intestate on or about the 8th day of June 1802 leaving a widow Elizabeth Martin and 4 children as his only heirs and next of kin … 3 of which children your orators the 4th John F R Martin died intestate and whilst quite and infant. … shortly after his death administration … the goods and chattels, rights and credits which were of the said John Martin decd was granted by the ordinary in and for the Dist and that … his widow and relict Elizabeth Martin, James Martin, and Joseph Palmer. That the said administratrix and administrators by virtue of their letter of admin became possessed of the whole personal estate … and as your orators are informed and believe sold a considerable part therof to an amount considerably more than sufficient to pay all the debt of the estate and defray the expenses of administration.
Your orators further shew … that a certain Andrew Bodan instituted a suit in the Court of Common Pleas at York Court House in for the Dist and State afsd against Joseph Palmer and Elizabeth Martin administrator and administratrix as afsd for the purpose of recovering the sum of 120 dollars 42 cents secured to be paid by a common promissory note … given by the confession of the said Defendants and was entered up and enrolled against them as admin and admstx afsd for the sum of 170 and 42 cents debt and 20 dollars 11 cents cost all which will more fully appear ref being had to a certified copy of the said record herewith filed as a part of this Bill and marked Exhibit B.
… Your orators further shew unto your Honors that Richard Sadler Esqr then Sher of York Dist on the 4th day of Oct 1808 … by virtue of some pretended or supposed authority devised from or under the said judgment sold a tract of land which the said John Martin decd … possessed containing 300 acres … in the Dist and State afsd on the waters of Bullocks Creek adjoining the lands of Elnathan Davis deceased of William Smith and others, at which sale so made was afsd one of the Defts William Smith became the purchaser at the price and for the sum of 1000 dollars or thereabouts …. your orators are informed obtained titles for the same … your orators charge that said tract of land was at that time well worth and would have sold for seven or eight thousand dollars if the same had been legally and fairly exposed to sale. And they further shew unto your Honors that the said William Smith has held possession of the said tract of land ever since his purchase until very lately when he as your orator is informed and believe sold and conveyed away the same to Robert Latta of the Dist and State afsd and that while in his possession the said tract was very much injured and exhausted by cutting down the timber clearing and cultivation, that the large and abundant crops he raised on the afsd tract of land since his afsd purchase up the the time of his above mentioned sale have been sources of income, wealth, and profit to the said Deft. The annual rent of which tract of land one year with another your orators charge to be well worth 500 dollars per annum.
… your orators further shew unto your Honors that notwithstanding all three of the said administrators were jointly entrusted in and charged with the administration of the said estate, yet the said Elizabeth Martin performed few or now acts as administratrix as afsd. But being confined with the care and troubles of a then helpless and infant family, trusted the whole management of the estate either to the said Joseph Palmer or the said James Martin or to both of them jointly.
And they further shew that throughout the whole course of admin upon the said estate the said admins acted under the counsel, advice, direction and superintendence of the said William Smith who was at that time and for a consideration after an iminent counsil and practicing lawyer in the Courts of this State residing at York Court House.
… your orators further … unto your honors that they … charge that the sale by the said Richard Sadler as Sher afsd of the said tract of land, and the purchase by the said William Smith are absolutely null and void in as much as the said admins at the time of the sale afsd had assets of the personal estate in their hands more than sufficient to have paid off the said judgment and inasmuch as the sheriff had no legal authority to sell the said tract of land.
… further shew unto your Honors that the said tract of land although it was represented at the time of the said sale as containing only 300 acres. Yet in fact your orators charge that it contained a third more and would have sold for a considerably greater sum of the real quantity had been known.
… your orators further shew unto your Honors that the said tract of land so purchased by the said William Smith was by far the most valuable and susceptible of improvement and increase of value of not only of all the several tracts of land of which the said John Martin decd seized and possessed, but was also more valuable and capable of improvement than any part of the personal estate of the said intestate.
… your orators further shew unto your honor that there was no necessity for sacrificing the said tract of land for cash at Sher sale, but the same was advised and procured and had and made under the express direction of the said William Smith who as your orators are informed and believe some short time previous to the sale afsd by the Sher afsd went upon and secured the said tract of land with an intention of having it sold and becoming a purchaser himself.
… they further shew unto your Honors that the said admins were ignorant that it was both illegal and unjust that the said tract of land should be sold by the authority for purposes and in the manner above set forth and depended entirely upon the counsel and advice of the said William Smith as their attorney as above state and that it was by means of the capacity in which the said William stood in relation to the said admins and the estate that he became acquainted with the value of the said tract of land and the affairs of the estate.
… your orators further shew unto your Honors that Joseph Palmer one of the admins departed this life ….
… by reason whereof the administration of the said estate of the said John Martin decd disolved upon and survived to the said Elizabeth Martin and James Marting and that the said Elizabeth Martin some time since intermarried with James Sadler who would have been admistrator in the right of his wife upon the said estate jointly with the said James Martin all of whom declining further management of the said estate and the ordinary of the district and State afsd revoking his letters of admin of all and singular the goods and chattles rights and credits which were of John Martin deceased in the hands of his surviving admins undadministered was granted to George Ross who has since completed the unfinished admin and settle up the affairs of the sd estate of the afsd intestate.
… your orators further shew unto your Honors that Robert Latta of the Dist and State afsd as your orators are informed and believe a short time since purchased the afsd tract of land from the said William Smith with a full knowledge of the fact and circumstances above stated in your orators bill and with a notice of your orators claim as heirs at law of the said tract of land and that they intended to commence suit shortly to establish their claim afsd.
… your orators further shew unto your Honors that they have lately arrive to the age of 21 years and have since frequently and in a friendly manner applied to the said William Smith and Robert Latta and requested them to deliver up possession of the said tract of land to your orator and to account for the rents and profits thereof during the time they have had possession of the same and that they would deliver up all the title deeds relative to the said tract of land in their possession in order that the same might be cancelled and your orators well hoped that they would have complied with such their reasonable request as in conscience and equity they ought to have done.
… But now so it is may it please your Honors that the said William Smith, Robert Latta, James Martin, Elizabeth Sadler and James Sadler combining and confederating together to and with diverse other persons as yet unknown to your orators. But whose names when discovered they may be inserted herein as Defendants and parties to this your orators suit with proper and sufficent words to charge them with the premises in order to oppress and injure your orators do absolutely refuse to comply with the above request of your orators.
… Your orators charge the whole premises to be true, that the afsd sale and purchase an absolutely void and fraudulent that there was no deficiency of personal assets, that they have been denied their just and legal rights and equitable partition of the afsd tract of land under the specious but flimsy pretence and excuse of the estate being better managed by a sale of the above tract of land and the presentation of the prersonal property, all which actings pretences and doings of the said confederates are contrary to equity and good conscience and tend to the mainfest injury and oppression of your orators.
… In tender consideration whereof and for that your orators are remediless in the premises by the strict rule of the Common Law and relievable only in a Court of Equity where matters of this nature are properly cognizible. The the end therefore that the said William Smith, Robert Latta, James Martin, Elizabeth Sadler, and James Sadler may respectively full, true, direct, and perfect answer make upon their respective corporal oaths according to the best of their respective knowledge ….
